ChitownDollz hosted a meet up at the Garfield Park Conservatory in Chicago on Saturday.
It was a pretty small turn-out (ok, it was a pretty dismal turn-out – there were 2 of us), but it was actually for the better.
Unbeknownst to us, the conservatory has been undergoing maintenance and half of it was closed – including the Palm House and the Desert (Arid) House. How disappointing!
We did, however, have a family of siblings come over to explore our BJDs. They ranged in age from about 2 to 11. They were wonderful kids – absolutely precious! They loved how posable the dolls are, and how the hair is all wigs. And the older brother did such a great job wrangling in the younger ones when needed.
After the kids left, we walked around for a short while before we decided to head out to Oak Brook to have some coffee and chit-chat.
It was such a good time being able to catch up with a good friend.
I was a bit lazy, though, and didn’t get very many pictures.. Actually, I only took 3 pictures during the entire day. Talk about slacking!
The next meet up, I need to make sure I do better. 😛
I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it! *dances*
DairylandBJD forum is hosting their annual summer meetup in Madison on July 19.
A few of us are getting a hotel to make it a full weekend of dolly goodness. And I’m so excited!
Attendance was limited to 100, so if you weren’t able to grab a spot this year, join the forums and keep an eye out for next year! There are tons of dolls to see, and many people bring items for sale.
If you WERE able to grab a spot – can’t wait to see you there!

While I usually update new posts on Mondays, I thought it would be nice to update a little early this week…
We had our ChitownDollz Mitsuwa meet yesterday, and we had a great turn out! A HUGE “Thank you!!” to everyone who came!
We had so many people and fantastic dolls on display. 😀
I was able to take photos of most of the dolls we had there, but I know I missed a few – especially an adorable MysticKid MSD girl. <3
We have our next Mitsuwa meet up scheduled for August 23. In the mean time, we will be at the Dairyland Summer Meet in Madison, and we may have a ChitownDollz meet at the Garfield Conservatory in Chicago.
Keep an eye out for more info, and can’t wait to see everyone soon!
